Cycling for Science

Thank you to our cycling hero, Science teacher Mr Shipley. Before half term he arranged a competition to see how far he could cycle during one lunchtime. Students and staff guessed the distance and cheered him on in the break out space.

The final time was 22.72Km in 40 minutes. Student 1st prize goes to Evie Putnam 11GTH and 2nd prize goes to Felix Mosson 13SRA. Staff 1st prize goes to Mrs R Walker.

Mr Shipley raised £270 for STEM projects which will fund the GO4SET Year 9 Engineering project. Go4SET is a 10 week project where students have to come up with a practical solution to a problem. Past projects have been “energy consumption in your school” and “design an eco-hotel”. The team will be working with an engineer from a local company.
